Google Summer of Code 2008


The Eclipse project is pleased to announce our participation in Google's Summer of Code program for 2008, following our second participation in 2007. Eclipse's page for this year's program at Google's website is here.


The official Eclipse Summer of Code IRC channel is #eclipse-soc located on freenode. Everyone is welcome as it is not restricted to students and mentors.

We also intend to use the soc-dev mailing list. Please subscribe if you are interested.

Meetings will happen on the Official Eclipse Summer of Code IRC channel. For information on meetings see the Eclipse SOC 2008 Meeting Page.


Several projects have their code available in CVS/SVN. Depending on the project, it may be hosted at (Mentors/Students only) or at

This year we probably want a SoC simultaneous release, so you can test out many of these projects from one update site. Please see the SoC Update Site for more information.


Students and Mentors: Please make sure that you have the project-specific wiki-page up to date (source code location(!), project goals, timeline and current status). If using IRC, add your IRC-name and try to stay online while SOC-coding.
